Crystals shine in starlight
Sky of the new moon,
It was almost midnight
I was wrapped in my blanket like a caterpillar in a cocoon.

Suddenly, something bright Flashed upon my weary eyes.
I woke up in total fright,
Praying that they were just fireflies.

But, it seemed to be
Something rare and mysterious.
I'm telling you the truth and on hearing it,
You might find me delirious.

There was a being, roaming around.
A being, who had never been found,
A being, which was light, translucent and round,
But who ensured that it didn't make a sound.

The colour of my sacred crystals
Reflected on its face,
And I quietly steadily pace.

I tried to hide
All of my fear,
As it began to walk
Towards me, near and near.

But it didn't seem to cause
Any sort of harm,
And as the night passed,
I started to fall for its charm.

Slowly, I began to notice
That the world around turning blurry
And felt some sort of a bliss,
For that moment, I had even forgot to worry.

Then I woke up in the morning,
With the ringing of the alarm,
But then I realised
That my soul felt totally calm.
Got inspired from a short story written by Guy de Maupassant and a video on an alien encounter on YouTube. And I still wonder... Are they real?

In spring they say
Alongwith flowers, love will bloom
But in my fate it was written
To stay in loneliness and gloom.

I stay day and night
Secluded in my room
Reflecting and crying about
My irreparable doom.

But the thought that my world
has ended, I won't assume
As hope creates the space
For happiness to mushroom.
There are times when the whole atmosphere around you is happy while you try your best to overcome your dark feelings, using hope as a shield to protect yourself from them.

They flash in the dark
Travelling through the skies.
A pleasant thing to see,
For my dreadfully tired eyes.
I wonder where they end up,
For in real they aren't stars
May be some of them might just crash into the land of Mars?

Still they give me
A tiny ray of hope
Does wishing to a shooting star really work?
May be yeah, may be nope.
Anyways, that idea is quite dope.
Though I've never seen a shooting star till now, I thought about these lines as I looked at the night sky in search of an orb of light in the dark. But, alas. The atmosphere today, especially in the cities is so polluted that even seeing the moon is a big thing. I hope some day this will change.

Wind whispers in my ears the sweet songs about nature.
And the trees surrounding me show a different but a beautiful picture.
While I try to take notes of sounds of every creature,
The earth teaches me something new as I attend every lecture.
Yes, the Earth is the best teacher one has ever had.

I see myself in the mirror, I see my reflection.

I don't think I'm flawless, some of my traits do need correction.

Am I beautiful? Well, that depends on one's perception.

In case of myself, I'm happy with my looks and complexion.

And I really don't care what the world says, cause I know I'm God's creation.
Be comfortable just the way you are cause God tried his best while creating you.

Why did you leave me in this forest of obscurity
Where there's a river of misunderstanding instead of clear reason
Showing me what's pure treason
Where there's always the cold winter season
'To not love you again' is my new learnt lesson.
To you, this is my last confession
And I hope from now on I'll never return again in this pitiful condition.
Heartbreak, the worst injury one can have.

Flower buds,
Cool breeze,
Butterflies and birds,
Fluttering at ease.
Describing today's weather in brief.
Spring; the season in which nature celebrates its best.
